Athletes 4 Cancer
Surf. Snow. Survive.
Three simple words that are deeply connected through more than just the H2O that is pivotal for their existence. For cancer patients, "survive" is the most important of these three. But for the team at Athletes 4 Cancer, it may be the other two that make the third one possible.
Athletes 4 Cancer uses the power of outdoor sports like surfing, stand-up paddling, outrigger canoeing, skiing and snowboarding "as channels of healing, achievement and life-renewal that treat the mind, body, and soul to help young adults renew, rebuild, and restart their lives after cancer." And maybe those last three words are just as important - Life. After. Cancer.
